Deep Sea Mining... an opportunity to do things right

May 07 2018 @ 9:00 AM - 6:00 PM

EurOcean is organizing a workshop about deep sea mining which will be held on Monday 7 May 2018 at the Gulbenkian Foundation, a wonderful venue in the centre of Lisbon, Portugal.

The event is an activity of the MARINA project, the only H2020 initiative focused on implementing Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI) within the European marine sphere.

Throughout the day we will employ the Structured Democratic Dialog Process (SDDP)- a workshop facilitation method that uses a dedicated software to discuss, aggregate and rank ideas previously developed by the participants - to achieve a common vision about this triggering question:

>> How can Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI) serve to bridge deep sea mining, sustainability and policy?

This international event will be conducted in English and will have an audience constituted by citizens, NGOs, researchers, technicians, politicians, industry representatives and media.

EurOcean and the MARINA consortium will be very happy with your participation. Should you want to secure one of the very limited seats, please follow these mandatory steps:
